So you want an education or career in Caring ? then first you will need some groundwork on the sort of issues that it covers, and whether you think that is the right environment for you.The politics of disability has changed over the centuries, for the better, by improved access facilities, conducted by predominantly changes in society towards disability (voting power) improved information on disability (by census records on such as the "Prevalence of Disability amongst Adults"and technological advancements such as the neuroscience Institute of Experimental Science, Hungary.
The development of cities and mass water supplies from the Middle Ages led to huge outbreaks of water related disease, which in turn led to the authorities needing to determine the what, where, when, why and who of various outbreaks, such as cholera (which was originally believed to be contagious).Over time, such authorities mostly in the health fields, took an increasing foothold in the corridors of power, but it was expanded on, as explained by Turner to the changes to the present day;
"Put simply, the doctor has replaced the priest as the custodian of social values: the panoply of ecclesiastical institutions of regulation (the ritual order of sacraments, the places of vocational training, the hospice for pilgrims, places of worship and sanctuary) have been transferred through the evolution of scientific medicine to a panoptic collection of localised agencies of surveillance and control. Furthermore, the rise of preventative medicine, social medicine and community medicine has extended these agencies of regulation deeper and deeper into social life."
Turner: 1987 pp. 37-8
Although Peter Lilley's attempts to gain more independence for the disabled was seen in some quarters as overdue, critics point out that much of the legislation would need case law to fall into actual law of the land (demonstrating the initial legislation as weak).According to Martyn Denscombe "Over one third of adults in Britain suffer from a long standing illness. Over one in five report that such an illness limits their ability to work..." ( Denscombe: 1999; 31) The General Household Survey revealed two things; despite rises in health provision via the NHS and healthier eating habits, society is getting increasingly ill. Secondly, the weight of the costs to the state (£24 billion in state and disability benefits) explains in no small part Lilley's deferred legislation as the state tries to limit the expansive cost to the taxpayer.
Today the lobby groups of the disabled represent a large minority of voters, but also an increasingly heavy cost to the taxpayer.
